~::~ Starry Wishes ~::~
She wished upon a star surreal
A wish she thought was unreal
Beautiful life, a fairy tale
Even happy endings prevail
And that someday they’d walk down the aisle, as couple
It happened on a starry night
She walked home in the pale moonlight
She almost tripped upon a stone
And he helped lest she broke a bone
That was the day they first met, pure love at first sight
They kept meeting ‘neath cherry trees
They met even when the lakes freeze
Their fates tied by heavens above
It was meant to be, timeless love
Until on a doomed night he was called to the seas
Every day she stood wistfully
Reminiscing their moments fondly
The cherry trees, the lakes & moor
And now the future seems unsure
Yet she wished upon every star passionately
I hoped you liked it, please share your comments, feedback and brickbats.
Keep watching for more poetry forms! 🙂
